Araxis Merge Compare Actions

   

 

FinalBuilder supports the "File Compare" and "Folder Compare" functionality of Araxis Merge, which is a third-party product produced by Araxis Software.

 

Both the Araxis File Compare & Araxis Folder Compare actions use the preferences set inside the Araxis Merge application to determine comparison options.

 

araxis_filecompare

 

Files

 

Araxis Merge can compare either two or three files, generating a two- or three-way comparison report.

 

 

Report

 

Araxis Merge can optionally save a comparison report in XML, HTML or Diff format. See the Araxis Merge documentation for details on each format.

 

 

Behavior

 

The action can be set to fail if the files are different, fail if they are the same, or fail only on errors (if neither box is  checked.)

 

araxis_foldercompare

NB: Comparing folders with large contents can take a long time to complete.

 

Folders

 

Specify two or three folders to compare.

 

 

Report

 

Similarly to the Araxis Compare Files action, Araxis Compare Folders can save a comparison report. Available report formats are HTML or XML.

 

 

Behaviour

 

The action can be set to fail if the folders are different, fail if they are the same, or fail only on errors (if neither box is checked.)
